blame it on JES7 March 16, 2014

There’s been a lot of positive feedback and demand for De La Soul since they took a chance at releasing their entire catalog for free on Valentine’s Day.

Dave, Posdnuos and Maseo revealed to Billboard that the reaction has “Motivated us even more.” Dave also had the following great news: “We’re already in the process of recording two albums, but actually it made us feel like we really, really need to get this done. People are still fans, still really love the music and let’s do it for them.”

One of the upcoming LPs is expected to be sample based, while the other will feature the live sounds of LA’s Rhythm Roots Allstars. As far as that mixtape? Expect it to pan out almost album-like, with skits and all that jazz. Spotted at HHDX.
